I'm wondering why he used the rope and didn't pull it far enough forward. it seems like a really simple thing to do and not forget about?

Yep, anything with the word DRY makes me a little Chaffe! haha

Nah, you didn't start it. It just happened on your thread. It would have happened eventually somewhere else.

Nice job BTW.

Yah, looks great. It take me too much time just to clean my boat after each outing to even consider doing that.

For a SHOWER, the cold should be tapped after the RWP. Else, your engine is competing with the shower for water.

For a HEATER that would be OK the way it is plumbed, maybe not the best but ok.

I bet if you move that bimini support base forward about 18", you could simply let the bimini rest in front of the tower, Good luck!
Wow, that's a great install and idea! That is the kind of engineering that I like to see. Those pics of your Maristar are great. The Polo Green is really nice.

I will take a look and see what i can do. Are you able to use the bimini top oopen while your underway?

Agreed. I spent time yesterday and Saturday spiffing mine up from a week at the lake. I only took care of the worst of it, still need to do some fine detailing.

You clean your boat after each outing?

Yeah, we use ours all the time, run wide open around the lake with no issues. I don't have any pics of the boat with the bimini all opened up, but can try to do that when we are at the lake next time. Let me know if you have any questions.

Nice boat, I'm envious of your tower, really like the looks on your boat. I took the cheapo route, but still happy with mine.
